1970s Porsche 911 Turbo and Aston Martin V8 Vantage
If you’ve been paying any attention, you will know that we head-over-heels love the Porsche 911. And yet, of the two examples you see here, we would take the Aston— no question. Not that the Turbo is any slouch, but the Aston is just more.. well, special. Just look at it, with its aggressive front spoiler, quad headlights, and that mother of all power bulges. The P-car is probably still the more satisfying drive, but in terms of raw, visceral punch, the manly Aston wins.
